Taraba State governor, Darius Ishaku has raised alarm over fresh influx of Boko Haram members into the state.


Speaking to senators who paid him a visit at his office, he said the influx has made the state relatively unsafe, following recent attacks which gave rise to internally displaced persons, IDPs. He also said recent arrests and interrogations by security agents indicated a high rate of influx to the state.

The senators were in the state on fact-finding mission to IDPs camps in the state.

Governor Ishaku said it was the responsibility of the Federal Government to take proactive measures to forestall any breakdown of law and order, urging the senators to evolve ways of tackling issues of insurgency in the country, particularly in the North-East, which had been ravaged by Boko Haram.

It would be recalled that the senator representing Taraba South, Senator Emmanuel Bwacha, had earlier this year raised at the Senate, alleging high influx of unknown persons into Taraba State.
